CTD#233 - Happy Birthday

 Hi there!  Well the old saying better late than never applies to my blog post today since I'm just now posting my card for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  Our hostess for this week is Lori who chose our spring/Easter colors and inspiration photo.
As you're looking at my card you'll see that I've forgotten one of the colors from the challenge which is pumpkin pie.  All I can say is that this card was my second attempt at creating a card (total lack of mojo lately) and I had the pumpkin color laying out on my desk and guess what?  It wasn't until I was typing up my post that I noticed it was missing.  Anywhoo, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Garden Variety along with the coordinating dies to create my birthday card along with the stamp set Happy Hexagons for my sentiment.
